The Thousand Buddhas 

This piece was designed to communicate the idea that every being can become a Buddha, as we all share the same Essential Nature, and that all Buddhas are one. The thousand Buddhas delicately painted with gold fill the entire canvas and symbolise the non-dual quality of enlightened Reality, and that no point of consciousness in the Universe is exempt from it - everything contains the seed of Buddha-hood. In the centre we see Shakyamuni Buddha meditating, holding a bowl in his left hand and touching the Earth with his right - in Bhumisparsha mudra - representing the moment he reached enlightenment.


ABOUT THE ARTIST - Karma Tshering

From an early age, Tshering has been influenced by the local flora documenting the flowers, trees and mountains with paint and pencil.

Alongside his exposure to nature within his region, he was also immersed by the strong iconography of the Traditional Buddhist Arts.

His practice blends both worlds, balancing between the traditional Buddhist motifs in combination with abstract forms. Collectively, his body of work stimulates the mind, reflecting the emotional freedom, balance and unity within Buddhist teachings. Through strong visual compositions he emphasises a message of peace to the world through his paintings.
